McCarthy Not Ready Yet Says Roberto

McCarthy Not Ready Yet Says Roberto

Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez says that new signing James McCarthy wont be rushed into action and that he is far from ready at the moment.

The young Irish/Scot was signed last week from SPL side Hamilton Academicals but missed the Latics training trip to Austria and has only had a very light pre-season training schedule so far.

Many were predicting that McCarthy would have made his Latics debut in last nights friendly against Preston at Deepdale but the Latics boss has vowed not to rush him and only throw him in when he is ready, Martinez told the Wigan Evening Post: 'James has had a very light pre-season so far and at the moment he is not ready to play in an 11-on-11 situation.

'He needs to increase his aerobic capacity, and we'll probably see him out on the pitch in around 14 days.'
